Most touching film I saw.

If alien life forms were to invade this world and come face to face with the human race, they would be utterly confused. Let’s face it, we are strange creatures. Kevin Macdonald, with the help of YouTube and the Sundance Film Festival, has assembled and created Life in a Day, which honestly defines and depicts what it means to be human.

Here’s how it worked. In 2010, Macdonald planned on making a feature length documentary taking place in just one day, July 24th. Enlisting the entire global community, people from around the world were asked to film a day of their own lives and submit it. Macdonald and his team of editors sat down and sifted through about 5,000 hours of footage from places like Tanzania, Brazil, England, New Zealand, Australia, and many more to compile what they believed could tell an exceptional story of their day.
